   The Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills is honoring the 100th birthday of Spike Jones. The centennial salute to Spike Jones is scheduled for Tuesday, February 21st at 7:30p. Free tickets for Paley members and the public are available this Wednesday at noon.

   According to The Paley Center for Media website:

Spike Jones invented and then defined an innovative blend of comedy and music. In celebration of the centennial anniversary of his birth, the Paley Center gathers a panel of family members, colleagues, and admirers, moderated by musical historian Dr. Demento, to salute this entertainment groundbreaker.

  The music of Spike Jones and His City Slickers, and his film, television and radio appearances will be remembered. Jones died in 1965 of emphysema. The bandleader’s son is expected to be on the panel.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
